POSSESSION Series Scavenger Hunt & Interview with Elana Johnson
Today, I'm one of the stops on the Possession series scavenger hunt! The third and final book, ABANDON, hit shelves June 4! I'm glad to interview author Elana Johnson on my blog today. ----------
1. What are three songs that match characters or scenes in the Possession series? Oooh, music. Let's see... Jag -- If You're Not the One by Daniel Bedingfield Zenn -- Waiting for the End by Linkin Park Vi -- Who Says? by Selena Gomez (don't judge me!)
2. If you could smack anyone in your book, who would it be? Why? Well, most of the time, it's Jag. He has some downright maddening characteristics -- which Vi and Indy actually call him on in ABANDON. I get where he's coming from most of the time, because well, I created him, but a lot of the time, I feel like Indy did in Regret (only 99 cents!) where she can't figure him out at all and everything about him makes her see red.
4. If you were a superhero what would your name be? Well, I know my power would be flying, because I hate the time it takes to drive anywhere! I'd totally have a cape, despite the hazards that come with them. As for my name, um... Freedom Fighter? Okay, that's totally lame. This is why I don't write superhero books, obviously!
5. Which scene or characters were the most difficult for you to write and why? Well, Gunner was really hard to figure out when I was writing Surrender. He kept sounding too much like a girl. I worked really hard on him, and I think he came out okay. The end of ABANDON was really hard to write. I couldn't find the right ending for a long time, and I think that's because it's not only the end of a book, but the end of the whole she-bang. Endings are always difficult for me anyway, but that one was particularly challenging. Today's scavenger hunt can begin here! Somewhere on this map of the Association is the winning city. Elana has mentioned the city here in this interview, and you can find references to it in all of today's posts. (See complete blog tour here.)
